Why I chose ESTEEM:

ESTEEM is the perfect environment for anyone with a STEM background who are looking to dive deep into the ocean of entrepreneurship. For me, it is the perfect opportunity to apply my technical background to real world problems.

My capstone thesis project and why I'm excited about it:

The focus of my thesis is on the analysis of how Avanade, the largest Microsoft systems integrator in the world, can continue to help their clients transform with data and AI, capture the new market opportunity and seek actionable strategies and solutions while adhering to global data regulations and the ethical use of data. I have always been fascinated with technology and how it can be applied to improve our quality of life. My thesis project leaves enough scope to explore many opportunities to improve our quality of life and this really excites me.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

That is a difficult question to answer... Working with technology and people are the two areas that I hope to see myself in after ESTEEM. I think I may have caught the infamous startup bug... So, I see a startup on the horizon.

What I like to do when I'm not working:

Keeping that foundation solid with healthy eating, exercise, chilling with friends, and lots of sleep.

And finally:
Enjoy the present, it is here for all but a moment.
